Surrounded by construction works and unable to access made this a wasted side trip from the souk. Check with your hotel if situation changes. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This is not a special and different place, if you are in the Mia Park, continue walking and you will reach there, there is nothing special. You may take nice pictures towards to West Bay.
